The battery life is phenomenal, but that can't entirely make up for the phone's shortcomings. The software might have been a reason to buy the G Power, but it's running Android 10 and the only guaranteed update will bring the phone up to Android 11, which it should have launched with in the first place. If I were spending $200 on a phone, I'd probably look at Nokia devices before the new G Power.
The 2021 Moto G Power has adequate power and battery life, but it's a downgrade from the 2020 model and can't compete with the OnePlus Nord N10 5G.
If $200 is the limit of your budget, the G Power is a fine pick — more so because there are few other options at this price. In addition to its dayslong battery life, it has a better processor than the $100-150 competition and you’re unlikely to find a substantially better screen or camera at this price. Just be aware of its limitations and pack a little patience.
The Moto G Power (2021) is a frustratingly mediocre smartphone. The hallmark feature is the same as its predecessor, with the new G Power touting three-day battery life on a single charge. You're also getting a refreshed design and a higher-resolution camera, but that's where the improvements end. The 2021 variant of the Moto G Power has a lower-res 720p display, less storage and RAM, and ships on outdated software. Motorola missed the mark with this one.
The Moto G Power (2021) is a worthy successor to previous G Power models, as it still offers long battery life in an affordable, attractive package.
Get the Moto G Power if long battery life is a top concern and you don't want to spend a lot. Its performance is mostly the same as last year's model, and its screen isn't as sharp, but the camera performs better in low light, and it lasts almost three full days on a charge.
